The orange route takes you from the city centre to the diverse neighbourhood of Christianshavn. We pass by the famous Christiania Freetown and offer an amazing view from the Opera House. This line is in operation from May - September.

The bus was always on time and there was always a spare seat. The route was ok, I guess I was just used to longer distances due to bigger cities I have visited before. As there are a few different companies offering this service, it was a little bit confusing to find out which bus belongs to which company. Once you figure that out, you’re ready to go.

Takes you all round Copenhagen and the surrounding area

3 bus routes, boat trip, walking tour and visit to HC Anderson experience all included. Sites like the little mermaid are a long walk from the city centre, without the bus we probably wouldn't have made it (although to be honest you wouldn't miss much in the case of the LM). One of the routes even includes the airport so you could use it for your trip home. Buses were punctual and frequent. Overall well worth the money. One tip - check the boat tour operators name on the ticket. They don't have a sign up with the bus tour name so you have to look for theirs and there are several operators.

El tour en bus y en barco, son casi obligatorios para comenzar a conocer Copenhague. El sistema de descenso y ascenso opcionales, hacen de estos tours muy relahados. Poder disponer de 48hs para el uso del bus, es más que útil. Los contactos con la empresa en diferentes idiomas por WhatsApp han sido muy útiles. Sin duda, contrataría nuevamente por medio de ustedes!
